    Caught my third shiny Aipom while hunting for shiny Eevee in a safari. Caught two shiny Remoraid in my ORAS game (might as well try this shiny dexnav thing) from chain fishing and evolved one to Octillery. Caught a shiny Carvahna and evolved it to Sharpedo, only to find out it doesn't look purple when using Surf

    When catching the Carvahna, I had three chains of 40+ and could not catch a shiny to save my life. I guessed it was possibly due to my suction cups Pokémon being fainted, and sure enough, after I used a revive on it, the next catch was a shiny...

      Alpha Sapphire - Helena

      Shiny Female Oddish (Bridget) - Caught on the route just outside Fortress City in the big mass of Long Grass. She was caught on a Chain of 43 and a Dexnav Search Level of 643 (Which doubtless included a lot of Horde Hunting). She is Level 29 with a Timid Nature and a 0 in Special Attack. I think I will evolve her into a Bellossom and use her for Contests.

          While continuing my search for a shiny Slowpoke, I have just found yet another shiny Wingull. XD

            Shiny Female Oddish (Melanie) - Still wanting my own Green and Orange Vileplume I went back to Route 120 to look for another Shiny Weed Pokemon. Had to wait a bit longer this time but after 90 Dexnav searches and a search Level of 731 another Shiny Oddish appeared. She is Level 30 with a Timid Nature and a Perfect IV in Speed. She also has the Chlorophyll ability. I plan to evolve her into a Vileplume, EV train and take her to the Battle Maison.

            I have therefore caught two Shiny Oddish in one day.

              Finally caught a shiny Slowpoke.

              Edit: Just randomly found a shiny Roselia with the dexnav.

                  Today I caught 2 shinies fish chaining.


                  The first was Dragalge at a 98 chain, I caught 2 shiny Skrelp in the past but didn't want to evolve one because it's a high level evolution so happy to have this. The second was my original intended target, Qwilfish at 65.


                  In my first chain of 98 I only encountered 3 Cloyster and the first one didn't show up until the 54th encounter. Is it 5%? In the 2nd one I also encountered 3, 10th, 11th and 60th. The 5% encounters are random.

                    I'm clearing out my PC boxes in Y by wonder trading Pokemon I don't need and someone just traded me a shiny Metapod.

                    Edit: I looked up the name of the person who traded it to me (AusLove.tv) and it turns out he's a streamer who is wonder trading shinies right now.

                        I caught a shiny Kakuna in Friend Safari yesterday after about 153 encounters, about 33 encounters that day. I evolved it into Beedrill.

                          Finally broke my week long dry spell for getting a shiny in the friend safari. Just caught another Calm Eevee! My synchronize didn't kick in (was shooting for Bold nature), but it doesn't matter since it was a male with Run Away instead of a female with Anticipation like I was hoping for. The math really isn't on my side for that combo, but one can hope, right? At least I have another Eevee to add to my shiny Eevee evolution collection.

                          I should probably work on completing my National Dex on ORAS so I can shiny chain Eevee in the wild... I'm really good at the chaining lol

                            Shiny Metapod is one of those coloration choices that I love... would be in my bank/computer forever without evolving lol

                              Spent most of yesterday and this morning looking for a shiny in horde battles and I just found a shiny Hoppip after 578 encounters.

                                Shiny Female Shroomish (Laura) - It's another Grass Shiny caught after a Chain of just 25 and a Dexnav search Level of 378. She has a relaxed nature and the Effect Spore Ability. I plan to keep her as a Shroomish until she learns Spore then use her as a Shiny Hunting Buddy of sorts. I think I will change her Ability to Poison Heal with the spare Ability Capsule I have. I like the autumnal red/brown of Shiny Breloom so I am very pleased with this find.

                                  I caught a shiny Relicanth at a chain of 7 yesterday.

                                  I also caught another Remoraid and another Skrelp looking for Clamperl and Horsea.

                                    Shiny Male Magmar - Caught in a friend Safari whilst searching for a Shiny Braixen. He has a Hardy Nature and two perfect IV's in HP and Special Defense. The Pink tone is a notable change to his regular Colour scheme. I may eventually evolve him into a Magmortar.

                                        Well I did it, my longest fish chain ever. 201 with no shiny Horsea or Skrelp. I broke it purposely at 201 because there wasn't any point in continuing, it was just a dud chain.



                                        Edit: I just found a shiny Larvesta in Friend Safri at 74 encounters.

                                          Was your suction cups Pokemon fainted by chance? I got a shiny right after using a revive on mine. I was working on a long chain and was getting frustrated. Thought maybe it was due to my squid being fainted, so I revived. Very next catch was a shiny!

                                            Nope, I gave my Octillery a Smoke Ball. That's a good idea though, I had a fainted level 1 cute charm male Cleffa in front of my party when I was going for a female Combee. It's nice that you can use fainted pokemon abilities. Though no matter where Cleffa was in my party when it was fainted it always appeared in the pokemon amie main screen.

                                            I remember going into a normal friend safari with Audino, Eevee and Teddiursa with the intention of fainting Cleffa and had to encounter 3 or 4 Pokemon because they kept using non damaging moves.... Finally Eevee Covet.


                                            Anyways I decided to do some fish chaining today for Dratini, I ended up reeling in 3 shiny Poliwhirl and 2 shiny Basculin. I think the chain breaks when you find a shiny but I actally caught 4 of the shinies on a continuous chain meaning I got a bite every time and didn't move or turn off the game, only caught the shinies.

                                            I caught Poliwhirl 1 at 19, then Basculin at 46, then Poliwhirl 2 at 71 and Poliwhirl 3 at 109. There was a bit if a pattern with a shiny appearing every 30 or so encounters. I accidentally broke this chain at 173, I moved the circle pad and turned sideways instead of hitting Y first. Basculin 2 was on a new chain of 32.

                                            For those interested on my 173 chain I saw 14 Dratini. 10, 21, 75, 79, 94, 103, 107, 123, 132, 133, 148, 164, 168 and 173. On the second chain of 32 I saw it twice at 2 and 4.

                                              Went to my local Smyths store today and got a code for shiny Xerneas.

                                              Edit: Found a shiny Clamperl with the DexNav which marks my 100th shiny for my living dex.

                                                  What does Cute Charm do? Does it help get a Pokemon of opposite gender or something?

                                                    It makes Pokémon of the opposite gender to the Pokémon with it appear more in wild encounters, in the case of Combee sometimes I'd have 5 female Combee's appear in a row. Without it you usually only get 1 female Combee for every 6 or 7 males. It's definitely good for starters or Eevee's which don't have equal gender encounter ratios.


                                                    Of course I believe 1 shiny is set randomly as soon as you walk into a friend safari so if the shiny is the male, with cute charm you may be forcing the shiny to not appear. It's not going to change the shiny to female. Of course if the shiny is female then you're cutting out 5 or 6 male encounters.


                                                    In a Friend Safari with 1 gender only Pokémon like Volbeat it would make them appear less. Not 100%, maybe like 75% less.
